Baker Shares Experience and Insight at Leading Local Institution.

Raleigh, NC, November 17, 2010 --( Brian Baker, managing partner of Plus One Partners, a Triangle-based strategic sales consulting firm that specializes in driving top-line revenue, was recently invited to speak at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Kenan-Flagler Business School. Baker was extended an invitation by Dave Roberts, the school’s Executive Director of the Center for Integrated Marketing and Sales, to speak to second year MBA students about his experiences and the real-world applications of sales techniques and approaches.

“I’m honored to have been invited to share my experiences and advice with the UNC community,” Baker said. “Kenan-Flagler is one of the top business schools in the nation, and this is a great new avenue to reach out and educate future business and community leaders about something that is so vital to every organization in every industry – a solid sales foundation.”
